HELP! I am having dress regret the second time around.
I went for a BIG BOLD move and got a very non traditional dress…I LOVE it everytime I put it on!
Yet everytime I look at other brides in their all white dresses I start to think if I am going to look back in on my wedding and regret not wearing the full white dress when I had the chance!
I am putting my feelings out on the limb here and asking for opinions..the dress was off the rack and on sale I got if for $799…so switching wont be that heart breaking (I will eventually sell this one if I decide to switch).
I just need opinions…
sorry I do not have pictures of me in the dress as it is wayy to big on me right now (another looonnnggg story).

Keep it! Don’t compare yourself to others. I think it looks beautiful I love the top and I love that it is different!

@KingsDaughter: Is that blue or black? If it is blue I LOOOOVE IT! If it is outdoor it’ll look light and beautiful. If you feel great in it then you should wear it. Other people are going to do what they are going to do. Only you can do what is right for you.

@KingsDaughter: Honestly, I love the dress and don’t think its really all that un-traditional. The fact that the bottom is white with black accents. If the dress was all black, it may not look very bridal, but I think the dress will look gorgeous going down the aisle and in pictures for years to come!

Keep the dress 🙂 You chose it for a reason and it’s beautiful!

You love it every time you put it on — so no, you shouldn’t regret it. Don’t compare yourself to other brides! Who cares what they do?

I think it’s a beautiful dress, but if you think you might regret the white dress, then get the white dress… it’s the only opportunity to wear one! maybe you could keep this one to wear at your reception?

@yogaqueen: When I go home tonight I will put the dress on and get a friend to take a picture of the front and post it….the dress is major big (read my other board) but I took it to a seamstres and it’s very easy to take in.

I think it’s a pretty shape. The color isn’t my personal taste, but I certainly don’t think it’s ugly or weird. The ruffles at the top are pretty! Is it in your budget to get another dress? If you feel like you might regret you could always shop around for aninexpensive white/ivory dress for the ceremony and wear the current one at the reception.

Did you try a similar cut in all white and dislike it? What is it that you like about the dress – the cut or the uniqueness of it? Is your wedding going to be more traditional or more fun?

I think the most important thing is the way you feel in it. If you love it now, that’s all that matters.
Don’t worry about how you’ll feel about it in 5, 10, 15 years. And the thing is, it’s not SO off the wall unique that it can be thought of as a mess. It’s still got white in it and is bridal in style, so I can’t see how you would regret it, especially if it makes you feel awesome.
I say stick with it.

If you are really worried why don’t you get a ceremony dress then wear that one for the reception!
